International Festival guests included Timothy Walker and Judith Hall (UK), Robert Brightmore (UK) and Petur Jonasson (Iceland). Australian artists included John O'Donnell (harpsichord) and guitarists Sebastian Jorgensen, Ken Burns and Peter Lynch who was joined by Jeffrey Crellin (oboe) and Prudence Davis (flute) for a recital of works from their acclaimed CD Images. As a prelude to the Festival, Stepan Rak (Czech Republic) gave a recital featuring his own compositions.
